Great fun and educational for the entire family. Join our Captain as he sets course on a journey to view those majestic mammals in their own environment. Enjoy the ocean air, narration and sights of Casco Bay as we cruise offshore to known whale feeding grounds.

More than just watching whales. Join us as we search for and track Humpbacks, Finbacks, Minkes, North Atlantic White-Sided Dolphins, Harbor Porpoises, Basking sharks, Ocean Sunfish, Sea Turtles, as well as countless seabirds who often accompany on our explorations.

Our experienced naturalist will point out and explain all the natural wonders we encounter on the wild ocean that makes up three quarters of our planet!
